Displaying Housing Data with Google Maps
UK charity the Joseph Rowntree Foundation has created the Housing and Neighbourhoods Monitor to provide analysis of key housing and neighbourhood trends across the UK.
The monitor includes an application that allows the user to explore key economic, demographic and housing data on a Google Map. Users can select data sets from the map sidebar and view the data overlaid as a choropleth layer on the map.
The map tools include location search and a slider to control the opacity of the data layers on the map.
